    • 10/31 This institution hired a VAP roughly matching this set of teaching abilities in summer 2021 after denying tenure to another scholar, and this may be their way of converting that VAP's position into a TT.
    • 11/1 Or, those are the areas that they need someone to teach, so they hired someone with that profile. They will still need someone with that profile going forward, so that's what the job ad says; it wasn't necessarily written with this particular VAP in mind. Maybe the VAP doesn't want to stick around the institution, or isn't doing well in what is basically an extended job interview. This kind of speculation is worthless and if you're interested in the job, you should apply for it and ignore all this. -5120j

  • 10/30 If this is an internal hire, I will call an attorney and file a complain.
    • 10/30a I'm one of the people asked for more materials, and I'm in no way internal here. The market is tough for everyone, whether that person is internal or not—let's not turn on each other and make it worse.
    • 10/30b If there is an internal hire, it should be openly stated. Serious scholars do not have time for deceitful and distasteful games.
      • 10/30a I'm absolutely with you—nothing makes me angrier than when searches aren't up front about what they want. However, in my experience, even if there is an internal candidate, the faculty are rarely in agreement about them, and the job is open. Certainly, there are percentages of more or less openness, and the opacity of the academic job market makes a stressful process worse.
  • 11/1 The existence of an internal candidate is not a guarantee that a search is an inside hire. If you're interested in the job, apply; if you're not, don't, but this sort of speculation is, at best, a waste of everyone's time. Maybe the internal candidate hates the job and department and location and didn't even bother to apply, or maybe they're a shoe-in and applications from anyone else are going straight in the trash. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, and no one here knows. In my experience moderating this wiki for many (many) years, the job searches that are truly fake are often posted with super short deadlines, and aren't advertised outside the school's HR site. Neither is the case here. -5120j

University of Manitoba: Assistant Professor, Indigenous Music

  • Deadline: Review begins 08 March 2022
  • The Desautels Faculty of Music (DFOM) at the University of Manitoba (UM) is pleased to invite applications for a tenure-track position in Music for an Indigenous music practitioner and/or scholar. The appointment will be at the rank of Assistant Professor and begin on 1 July 2022. This opportunity is open to individuals who are Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit).
  • In reconsidering our curriculum and the music we teach, perform, and study, the DFOM has been taking fundamental steps toward creating an environment in which Indigenous students and scholars can thrive. To that end, we have established a faculty learning community focused on reconciliation and decolonization; we are developing new collaborative models and commissioning practices with Indigenous musicians; we have broadened both our methodologies and the scope of the musics with which we engage in music theory, musicology/ethnomusicology, and music education; and we have begun to reflect on the fundamental roles language and the land might play in decolonizing our faculty's activities. We are searching for a colleague who will model decolonial practices in their course content, the structure of their discourse, and interactions with students in their classroom, studio, and/or rehearsal hall. Ideally, the candidate will embed Indigenous knowledge and perspectives into their courses and amplify the voices of other Indigenous scholars and artists, thereby helping to place European classical music and jazz in a broader context, challenging the structures that uphold their dominance in our faculty and society.
  • Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be expected to teach a full range of courses in their area(s) of expertise; maintain an active research and/or creative work program; and engage in a range of institutional, professional, and community service. Because this position will likely open new avenues of study in our curriculum, the candidate will be encouraged to develop new courses closely aligned with their research/artistic work in any area relevant to Indigenous experience related to music.
  • Qualifications: The ideal candidate will hold a terminal degree in their area of expertise. At minimum, they will have a master's degree in music and/or expertise in Indigenous cultural and musical practices. Although specialization remains open, priority will be given to candidates whose professional practice crosses disciplinary boundaries and/or engages with music outside the realm of Western art music. The DFOM is interested in applicants committed to engaging with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and to bringing together academic and non-academic communities. Post-secondary teaching experience will be considered an asset. Further information regarding the UM's initiatives with respect to expanding Indigenous leadership is available at: https://umanitoba.ca/about-um/vice-president-indigenous/engaging-community-expanding-indigenous-leadership.
  • Application Materials: Please send a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, and at least two samples of recent research and/or creative work. As the DFOM has been actively engaged with decolonizing its curriculum, supporting Indigenous student success, and diversifying our role within the UM and the community, applicants are asked to also include a statement about how they see themselves contributing to these vital initiatives. Finally, please arrange for three (3) confidential letters of reference to be sent under separate cover to:

  • Qualifications: The Bolin Fellowships are awarded to applicants from groups underrepresented in academia and/or in a particular field of scholarship, who show exceptional promise as scholars, who have an interest in and capacity for teaching students from groups that have been underrepresented in higher education, and who are pursuing a career in higher education in the United States. Eligible applicants include all U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. permanent residents (holders of a Permanent Resident Card); individuals granted deferred action status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program; Indigenous individuals exercising rights associated with the Jay Treaty of 1794; individuals granted Temporary Protected Status; asylees; and refugees.
